Ypsi, a first?   :)   Enjoy it while you can . . .

Let's hope our TITANS play well this weekend and finally get over the hump with WC, grabbing the AQ.  Good to have the #2 seed, to get the rest.

Congrats to Sydney Shanks on her POW honour.   A great way to go out as a senior.  Wonderful career at IWU for Syd. 

I hope she gets first-team All-CCIW, too.

Can't argue much with previous posts on the proposed All-CCIW slates.  Some great performances all year.

Glad to see the three Hannah rule broken up soon . . .   :)

Thanks, Q, I appreciate your "take" and the info about the various IWU prospects for All-CCIW.  I share your optimism about the future, given all these guys coming back, hopefully healthy and active, for next year. 

We'll see the All-CCIW teams very soon.

All best from Hong Kong, a deeply troubled and worried city.

Regular season in the books.  Congrats to NCC on winning the championship.  I was right on that one.

Q, intriguing list.  Sort of hard to know what to do about Titans on the All-conference team with so many key injuries.  I think Wolfe and Yoder would have made it.  Can't see Leritz as first team, over Baltimore.  Somehow think Schumacher deserves a spot.  If the award was "newcomer" instead of "freshman" of the year, he'd be up there for it.  Actually, I think Bair deserves consideration, even missing this last game.  Overall, he made greater contributions to IWU's successful season than Leritz.  Yes, Leritz playing very well these past 7-8 games. 

Just my thoughts.  Titans have a great future with all the talent coming back.  (Senior O'Neill made a nice contribution tonight vs. Carthage). 

On to the tournament.  Let's hope our TITANS really peak further this next week.  EC struggled down the stretch, but still likely in the D3 dance, right?  AQ plus Elmhurst?   Or AQ plus NCC and EC?   Dreaming . . .

Titans found a way in Kenosha, 91-81 over Carthage.

Great game, lots of players contributing.  Noe, Schumacher and Lertiz, coming up big.

On to the tournament.  Guess IWU gets a home game in the first round.

Thanks, Q, for the background.  Sounds pretty serious, likely season-ending.  Tough loss again for the TITANS.  I could tell in the NPU game that he was injured, or sick or out of sorts somehow.

Leritz really playing well, agreed.  Noe and Mitchell getting more minutes. 

Here comes the tournament.  No rest, no reprieve.

A correction: ?

Sosa 24
Munroe 12

According to the final box score.

Titans in a much better position now as the #2 seed, can rest up, prepare for the weekend, and hope Brovelli's ankle improves, too etc.  Lowis made some key FTs tonight.  Good for her!

Hope Bair can recover for the CCIW tournament.  He did look out of sorts last game.

Gonna be tough against the Carthage huge bigs.

IWU over Carthage in Kenosha, a good road win, 70-62

IWU:
Sosa 26 and 6, winning the regular season CCIW scoring title
Shanks 16
Munroe 10 and 6
Brovelli 6 rebounds

Carthage:

Autumn Kalis was incredible:  33

I think WC won, congrats to them on the regular season championship.  I think NPU lost at Augie.  So, does this mean IWU is the #2 seed?

Here comes the tournament.  Much more basketball to be played for the AQ.

Congrats to the Titans and Coach Smith on another outstanding regular season

Greg, I agree NPU has a strong group, good prospects in coming back next year.  All I'm saying is that MU has now risen to the top four, the top tier of CCIW play.  Some think they will be in the top 2-3 next season.  WC loses a lot and I'm not all that certain they will be in the top group next season.  Frazier and others all graduating.   Likely they will, but they have a steeper climb, given their re-build or reload, depending on how it goes.  IWU, NPU and MU seem to have the most coming back.  NPU and MU in a positive direction from previous years.  IWU remaining at or near the top. 

I'm still hoping for the return of Raven Hughes, but probably unlikely.  Too bad.  She's a really great player and would give the TITANS much needed rebounding, defence and paint area scoring.  Eck or Heller likely moving into the starting five.  Of course, Brovelli is back. 

Looking forward to the tournament, hopefully IWU's third crack at WC for the AQ.

Thanks, Imitzel, for all your numbers crunching.  Very interesting.

Should be a great CCIW conference tournament.  Gotta play the games, no matter the seedings.

I have at long last concluded, yet again, that MU is in the top tier of CCIW women's basketball.  :)   I hope others agree with me.  And, likely even better, stronger next season.  IWU and MU will likely have the most talent coming back next season . .  sure would like to see Raven Hughes back on the IWU roster next year.   

Looking forward to the CCIW tournament and hope that after Saturday evening, IWU has the #2 seed.  Is that possible?

Should be a very competitive set of games for the AQ.

Congratulations to Kendall Sosa on her regional honour.  She's had an outstanding year, athletically and academically. 

Keep going Kendall.  :)
